Fire crews pushed the car off the road and out of further danger, with an unmarked police car also scrambled to the scene on Spaniards Road, Hampstead, just after 8pm.
A man, thought to be the driver, was sat on the ground, covered in a blanket and being spoken to by a firefighter in the aftermath of the crash.

A London Ambulance Service spokesperson said: ‘We were called at 8.07pm yesterday (29 December) to reports of a road traffic collision on Spaniards Road, NW3.
‘We sent an ambulance crew to the scene, who treated a man and took him to hospital.’
His condition is not known.
It emerged back in March that pop star Styles was looking to build a £30 million super-mansion by knocking two multi-million-pound properties into one.
The singer bought neighbouring 18th Century houses in North London and was understood to have hired Meghan Markle’s interior designer Vicky Charles to decorate his very own palace.
The 26-year-old first paid £9 million for one of the adjoining homes, then a further £4 million to acquire the property next door.
Between them, the houses boast ten bedrooms, a games room and cinema and each have an impressive spiral staircase.
Both have elegant porticoes, doorways with patterned fanlights, panelled doors and recessed sash windows.

The property, on a private road, was described as the perfect haven from the singer’s hectic showbiz lifestyle.
Friends of Styles, who is reportedly worth £60 million, said he had been looking to oversee a ‘huge and challenging’ renovation project for some time.
A source close to the project told The Mail on Sunday in March: ‘This is going to be one absolutely stunning super-mansion. The final bill is not going to be far shy of £30 million but when Harry wants to do something, he insists that he does it properly.
‘He views himself as a property developer in the making. It’s a hobby that he feels fortunate enough to enjoy.
‘But this is also an investment for Harry – he has been so clever with his money and he has no intention of stopping that.’
London Fire Brigade and the Metropolitan Police have been contacted.
